Abstract

The Powderhorn Wilderness Study Area (51,000 acres or 20,640 hectares) and the contiguous Cannibal Plateau Roadless Area (29,500 acres or 11,959 hectares) are on the Gunnison County-Hinsdale County boundary, approximately 50mi (80 km) southwest of Gunnison and a few miles east of Lake City, Colo. Part of the area has been known as the Powderhorn Primitive Area. The mineral resource potential of the study area has been assessed by the U.S. Geological Survey and the U.S. Bureau of Mines; this assessment involved, besides the geologic study and economic appraisal (Sharp and others, 1983), a geophysical survey (this report) by the Geological Survey, and a geochemical survey (Sharp and Lane, 1983) by the Geological Survey and the Bureau of Mines.
